-About Landscape Theory

Theory and practice are two equal components of a single consecutive operation, our general tendency, under economic stress, to divide these two into separate unconnected pigeon-holes ends in sterilizing both. The esthetic poverty of our general physical environment is an expression of that divorce of practice from theory. (…) Theory is the why of doing things, practice is the how; neither functions well without the other. If practice is know-how, theory is know-why.

Garrett Eckbo, Landscape for Living (1950)
